Those hot days that we had here in Southern California all I could do was indoor projects. I brought out my favorite paper pad by DCWV called "The French Country Stack".
A few months ago I purchased at Target a few jars. One of them I posted a while ago adding my dried lavender and roses, HERE.
These two here, I add some of my Grandmothers wooden spools that she had given me a long time ago and some of my dried mini roses from my Summer garden "2014".
I used Martha Stewart Multi-surface acrylic paint called, summer linen.
Using some of the papers to cover the top.
I did not want to cover the lid too much so I went with a simple grosgrain ribbon and twine. I added a tag to journal.
I did not want to cover up the papers so I just went very simple on these cards.
The sentiments are the Penny Black clear set called "gratitude". The rose stamp is a 2003 Stampin Up wood stamp. I used my markers to color rose stamp using American Craft marker called "blush" and Tombow marker #098. These are water base markers. I inked the Spellbinder lacy circle die using a soft green chalk ink and followed up with my gold leaf pen.
The butterfly is a Papertrey Ink die. The "just a little note" stamp is a Stampendous wood stamp.
Merci is a wood stamp by A Muse Artstamps. The decorative tape is a Martha Stewart that I just found at the Dollar Tree store. I believe the label die is a QuicKutz die.
The Mother's day stamp on the left is a Hero Arts and the other is a Stampin Up.
I made some paper pockets using lunch bags.
Four note cards with envelopes fit perfect.
I used the same rose stamp but in one color to stamp all over the pocket.
A belly band and added a die cut flower (tattered floral die by Tim Holtz)
I made some a while ago HERE, using brown paper bags for Fall.
With some of the scraps I made another Framed Christmas tree.
Here are two more, HERE
I also used some of the left over fabric to make another tea pot.
Here is another one that I made HERE.
Thanks for your visit and have a Wonderful Day!
